TAKE    A    SIP

Wine with me
Let our glasses overflow
The season to be merry
Is stood in the shadow

Caroller's will sing
And tinsel will be strewn
And even a smile
From the man on the moon

When we return
To our childhood
Grasping the memories
Clutching onto them tight
Families ensconced in their values
Traditional treats bear wonderful sight

Garlands of holly and red berries
Festoon halls all over the world
Pine trees clothed in baubles and snow
Mistletoe with leaves unfurled

Excited glow on children's faces
As each Advent day on the calendar they mark
Christmas Eve draws nearer and nearer
As Santa rolls in from the dark

A mince pie they left on a plate for him and
A dram of whisky to warm up his night
All those sacks of presents he unpacks
Then off again on his home bound flight
